3 Dental Health Tips for the Detroit Spring

Springtime in Detroit is a time for refreshing and renewing. As the sun begins to warm the air and blooming flowers start to beautify our yards and gardens, our thoughts turn to cleaner homes and healthier bodies. Spring cleaning is not only a good idea for houses but also a great strategy for dental health. Here in Metro Detroit and Livonia, Redford, and all the surrounding areas, we are all ready to enjoy us some spring!

Dr. Jim DeCapite wants to help everyone in the Motor City and beyond with these three dental health tips for this spring and throughout the year:

  • Floss and brush twice a day: Keep those teeth and gums fresh and clean every day by flossing and brushing regularly. Remember the 2×2 rule – brush twice a day for two minutes each to get teeth clean and keep gums healthy. Dr. DeCapite’s professional staff is happy to answer questions about proper flossing and brushing techniques.
  • Enjoy fresh fruits and vegetables: Eating healthier is one of the changes we usually make in the spring. Fresh, raw fruits and vegetables can also be great for dental health. Crunchy, juicy fruits, such as apples, are incredibly satisfying and will help keep the mouth clean and healthy!
  • Come in for a dental cleaning: Spring cleaning is not just for the home. Take the time to schedule an appointment for a thorough dental cleaning now, to help maintain great dental health throughout the summer. While brushing and flossing every day is great for dental health, a dental cleaning is even better for gums and teeth.

When spring cleaning for that great smile this year, think about keeping those teeth and gums clean and healthy. At DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we want our patients in Livonia, Redford, and the surrounding areas of the west side of Metro Detroit to enjoy a delightful spring and amazing dental health throughout the year.

Schedule that very important appointment for a dental cleaning and checkup today. We look forward to seeing all our patients in the Livonia, Redford, Dearborn Heights, Plymouth, and surrounding Metro Detroit communities!

We also accept new patients and, of course, all emergencies. We are conveniently located in Livonia, near the intersection of Schoolcraft and Merriman Roads. Call the office today to set an appointment!

4 Critical Reasons to Maintain Good Dental Health


In times of COVID and in 2021, it’s especially important for everyone to take good care of their overall health. One way to help do that is to maintain good dental health. There are many benefits to brushing and flossing regularly, to keeping teeth and gums in good shape, and to visiting Dr. Jim DeCapite twice a year for a thorough check-up. At DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we always stress to our patients in the Metro Detroit area that their dental health impacts their overall health.

Dr. Jim DeCapite wants everyone in Livonia, Redford, and the surrounding region to know the four critical reasons to maintain good dental health:

  • Keeping the immune system healthy: It is more important than ever to keep the body’s immune system functioning at its best now. Good dental health practices can reduce the likelihood of infections in the mouth that can cause the immune system to go into overload.
  • Maintaining heart health: We check our patients regularly for infections and inflammation caused by bacteria in the mouth, including gingivitis, because that can play a significant role in clogging arteries. Patients with infections of the gum could potentially be at a greater risk of heart attack and stroke.
  • Managing diabetes complications: Gum disease can also influence the body’s insulin resistance. We know that our patients with diabetes, especially, need to maintain good dental health because people who have dental health issues may have a more difficult time controlling their blood sugar levels. Patients with diabetes need to take extra care in maintaining good dental health, to help prevent further complications.
  • Preventing some digestive issues: The digestive process starts with chewing. When there are problems such as missing or painful teeth that keep the chemical processes from working correctly, it can cause other issues in the digestive system. Maintaining good dental health can help improve overall digestive health.

At DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we encourage everyone in the Livonia, Redford, Dearborn Heights, Plymouth, and surrounding Metro Detroit communities to learn more about the many ways good dental health can impact overall good health.

Our office is open by appointment. We are conveniently located in Livonia, near the intersection of Schoolcraft and Merriman Roads. Contact our office today to get started on good dental health and good overall health!

Happy Easter, everyone.

5 Toothpaste Tips for Metro Detroit Dental Health

Deciding which toothpaste to use can be a challenge. There are so many different varieties on the store shelves these days. It is hard to know which is the best. The main thing to remember, of course, is that using toothpaste to brush twice a day is very important to good dental health for our patients in Livonia, Redford, and the surrounding area on the West Side of Metro Detroit. At DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we want our patients to brush regularly and to know what kind of toothpaste is best for their specific needs.

Dr. Jim DeCapite shares five toothpaste tips for good dental health. When choosing a toothpaste, consider our five tips for dental health:

  • Consistency: The goal is to get everyone to brush their teeth regularly. Choosing a consistency that works for the family is the best option, whether that is a paste, a gel, baking soda, or even powdered toothpaste.
  • Sensitivity: The choice of toothpaste is very important for people with sensitive teeth. Toothpaste designed just for sensitive teeth can help by protecting teeth against the irritants that cause them pain. There are many over-the-counter toothpaste brands that contain ingredients to help block pain signals from reaching the nerves of teeth and that can work well to calm sensitive teeth.
  • Whitening: Regardless of the claims, toothpaste generally does not actually whiten teeth. Rather, whitening toothpaste contains scrubbing materials that remove stains, providing short-term results. At DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer teeth whitening treatments that can provide an almost permanent solution for a dull smile!
  • Cavity prevention: Dental health depends on preventing cavities and using a toothpaste that contains fluoride can help protect teeth against those cavities. The fluoride helps strengthen tooth enamel, protecting teeth from acid damage.
  • Flavors: Another factor in making sure everyone in the family uses the toothpaste regularly is choosing one with the desired flavor. When family members look forward to brushing their teeth, that’s a win for everyone! While the adults may prefer minty or cinnamon flavors, children may be more inclined to brush their teeth regularly if they can look forward to a fruity-flavored toothpaste.

At DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we encourage our patients to ask any questions about dental health, including which toothpaste is best for their needs.

Our office is conveniently located in Livonia, near the intersection of Schoolcraft and Merriman Roads.  Our professional dental team is ready to help all our patients in the Livonia, Redford, Dearborn Heights, Plymouth, and surrounding Metro Detroit communities!

Call the office today for an appointment to get started on good dental health and good overall health!

4 Important Ways to Start the New Year with Great Dental Health

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and a very Happy New Year, filled with love, laughter, and health! DeCapite Family Dentistry wants all its patients in the Metro Detroit area to enjoy the holidays and to look forward to a safe, healthy 2021. 2020 has been a year like no other with a pandemic that has affected all of us this year. As we close 2020, we must be positive with the possibilities for next year and may even make a few resolutions with new determination to make positive changes in our lives.

Dr. Jim DeCapite strongly recommends these four ways to start the new year with great dental health:

  • Make healthier food choices: Fresh, crunchy fruits and vegetables are great for teeth as well as for overall physical health. Dairy products and sugarless gum are also good choices for dental health.
  • Drink more water. We always think about keeping hydrated during the hot summer months, but it’s also very important during the colder months. A great resolution for dental health and for overall health is to drink plenty of water every day, throughout the year.
  • Brush and floss regularly: Brushing twice a day, for at least two minutes each time, and flossing every day can do wonders for dental health. The professional staff at DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry will be happy to show our patients the proper brushing techniques, to get the most out of that four minutes a day!
  • Visit the dentist for a cleaning and a check-up: Regular visits can help the dentist keep teeth extra clean while also checking for issues. Seeing the dentist every six months can help make sure any small issues don’t become bigger problems!

The team at DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is ready to help patients in Livonia, Redford, Dearborn Heights, Plymouth, and the surrounding communities learn more techniques so everyone can enjoy good dental health into the new year.

Call us today at (734) 744-5457 for a thorough dental checkup and cleaning. We are open to serve our patients by appointment and are taking all the appropriate precautions to keep everyone safe and healthy. We are conveniently located in Livonia, near the intersection of Schoolcraft and Merriman Roads.

The Thanksgiving season is a great time to think about things to be thankful for, such as these three keys Dr. Jim DeCapite offers for dental health:

  • A checkup twice a year protects dental health: A checkup and professional cleaning twice a year will enable the team at DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry to check for issues and to prevent bigger issues from happening, while making sure our patients’ teeth are professionally cleaned and healthy.
  • Good dental health helps with overall health: There are several benefits to maintaining good dental health, including helping to prevent heart disease and respiratory illnesses that have been linked to gum disease. Healthy teeth contribute to overall health!

This year, we can be thankful for dental health and the fact that it is so easy to maintain healthy teeth and gums. The team at DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is ready to help patients in Livonia, Redford, Dearborn Heights, Plymouth, and the surrounding communities enjoy good dental health.

3 Bootiful Tips for Halloween Treaters

As the leaves change colors and the weather turns cooler, it’s time to plan for the fall holidays. In October, most thoughts will turn to Halloween and some form of new trick or treating in this pandemic world. This year, especially, we encourage everyone to stay safe and healthy, whatever the celebrations may look like in Livonia and the Detroit Metro area. At DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry we encourage our patients to focus on good dental health as well as good physical and mental health.

Dr. Jim DeCapite offers “bootiful” three tips for Halloween treats that are healthy, tasty, and fun:

  • Get creative with vegetables: Yes, vegetables for Halloween! The kids don’t have to know how healthy these treats are, of course. Carrot strips and celery sticks make great broomsticks when string cheese becomes the broom. Sliced sweet potatoes are easily carved into scary faces that can be baked with a little seasoning. Bell peppers can become jack-o-lanterns filled with healthy zucchini and broccoli. Kids (and adults) will love these fun treats that are good for them!
  • Limit the sweet treats: At DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we understand the temptation of candy corn and miniature chocolate bars. We encourage parents to set limits for kids – and for themselves – and make sure everyone is aware of the effects of sugar on the teeth as well as the rest of the body. Have a treat or two each day but don’t overdo it. Brushing right after eating candy is also a must.
  • Offer alternatives: Halloween treats don’t have to necessarily be food. Kids love stickers, toys, puzzles, and other fun games. Dr. Jim DeCapite and his professional staff want our patients to be happy and healthy, so we encourage everyone to enjoy some alternative treats and limit the sugary snacks and sweet treats.

The team at DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is focused on helping our patients in Livonia, Redford, Dearborn Heights, Plymouth, and the surrounding communities enjoy good dental health throughout the fall. We are open to serve our patients by appointment and are taking all the appropriate precautions to keep everyone safe and healthy.

Contact us at 734 744 5457 today for a thorough dental checkup and cleaning, to get ready for the upcoming holidays. We are conveniently located in Livonia, near the intersection of Schoolcraft and Merriman Roads.

3 Very Important Reasons to See Dr. DeCapite During the Pandemic

We understand our patients have a lot of concerns during these challenging times. Rest assured that we take every step necessary to ensure everyone’s health and safety at DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. It is very important for our patients in Livonia and the Motor City to continue maintaining good dental health throughout the pandemic, including visiting the dentist for a cleaning and a checkup.

Dr. Jim encourages his patients with three very important reasons to seek professional dental care during the pandemic:

  • Damage from teeth grinding: These are stressful times. Many people are now grinding their teeth who probably didn’t do so before. Damage from grinding teeth can include damaged teeth as well as conditions such as TMJ and even headaches. A visit to Dr. DeCapite enables us to find and treat these issues before they become too serious.
  • Delays in cleaning: Understandably, people in the Detroit metro area and across the country have been hesitant about going to the dentist during the pandemic. However, it is critically important to get that professional cleaning and checkup to maintain good dental health as well as good overall health. Our staff works diligently to ensure the health and safety of all of our patients now and throughout the year.
  • Shifts in routines: Staying home, working at home, and having kids at home that are learning remotely, disrupts everyone’s normal routines. That may include the two times each day set aside for brushing and flossing. When these good habits are not kept up, dental issues such as painful cavities can arise. A visit to our office is essential preventing and treating these dental problems.

It is very important to maintain good dental health during the pandemic. Our dental team is focused on ensuring that all of our patients receive the best treatment possible. We are taking every precaution to keep patients and staff safe and healthy.

We are open to serve our patients by appointment. Contact us today for a thorough dental checkup and cleaning that are so important to good dental health during this pandemic. We are conveniently located in Livonia, near the intersection of Schoolcraft and Merriman Roads, only 20 minutes from anywhere on the Westside.

4 Great Ideas for Metro Detroit Smiles

Oh, the choices we face when it comes to choosing dental products! What kind of toothpaste is best? Which floss makes more sense? Brushing and flossing regularly, of course, are essential for good dental health. At DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we are focused on helping our patients in Livonia

Dr. Jim DeCapite offers four helpful ideas for excellent dental health:

  • Choose a toothpaste that will be used: While mostly a matter of personal taste, choosing a toothpaste can be overwhelming given all the available choices. Decide whether a flavored toothpaste will entice family members (especially kids!) to brush longer and more often. Other factors to keep in mind are cavity prevention, which is always critical, whitening needs, and sensitive teeth. The best toothpaste is one that will be used regularly!
  • Select an appropriate type of dental floss: Flavor is also a consideration when choosing dental floss. Mint-flavored floss can add to that feeling of a fresh mouth and might also encourage family members to floss more often. Waxed floss slides easily between teeth, helping to make sure those tight areas are properly cleaned. Keep a small container of floss handy for the office or on trips.
  • Get a regular checkup: Even when it feels like teeth and gums are in good health, a dental checkup can ensure that there are no cavities or potential trouble spots. It’s always best to get that checkup every six months to catch small problems before they turn into big ones.
  • Go for a professional cleaning: Toothpaste and dental floss are essential products to have in the home and it’s important to brush and floss regularly. It’s also very important to go for a professional cleaning regularly to get those spots that a toothbrush and floss can’t always reach.

The office of DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is now open to serve our patients by appointment. Contact us today for a thorough dental checkup and cleaning. Our professional staff is always happy to answer questions and give suggestions for better dental health. We are conveniently located in Livonia, near the intersection of Schoolcraft and Merriman Roads.

3 Healthy Tips for the Hot Detroit Summer

Summer is here! Although this year is a little different, we’re still enjoying safe cookouts and outdoor activities with our immediate family members. It’s important to remember some key points about staying healthy throughout the hot summer months. That includes maintaining good dental health. At DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we want our patients in Livonia and the Motor City to know about healthy options for food and drink this summer.

Dr. DeCapite offers three great tips for a healthy summer and a healthy mouth:

  • Raw fruits and vegetables: Crunchy carrots and juicy apples are refreshing during the hot summer months and they offer a lot of health benefits. Also keep pears, seedless watermelon, strawberries, celery, and raw broccoli on hand for snacks or appetizers. They’re good for the teeth and for overall health!
  • Crushed ice: It’s important to stay hydrated throughout the year but it’s particularly important when the weather is hot. Ice is great for keeping drinks and people cool, but crushed ice is much better for dental health than cubes. Many people like to chew ice cubes, which can damage enamel or possibly even chip a tooth! Crushed ice in a glass is best for summer health.
  • Infused water: Drop some healthy fruit into a pitcher of fresh, clean water for a refreshing and hydrating treat. Choose non-citrus fruits as the acid in limes and lemons can be harsh on teeth. Infused water is good for dental health and looks pretty on the table!

Stay healthy this summer by following these tips from our staff. Remember to keep hydrated and safe throughout the hottest months.

The office of DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is open to serve our patients by appointment. Now is a good time for a thorough dental checkup and cleaning. Call us today for an appointment at 734 744 5457.

Our office is conveniently located in Livonia, near the intersection of Schoolcraft and Merriman Roads.
